Installing a new deck is one of the best ways to add both value and functionality to your home. To ensure you’re getting the most out of your home addition, The Deck Store, your expert deck remodeler, discusses the things to keep in mind when tackling this project.
Deck or Patio?
First, determine whether a deck or a patio would work better for your property. While both offer similar functionality, the construction and physical appearance is different. Patios are usually constructed over flat ground, while decks are platformed surfaces that you can easily construct over a sloped surface. This makes decks ideal for properties with an uneven landscape.
When we construct custom decks for our customers, we first ask them what the primary function of the new deck will be. Do you plan to use the deck primarily for entertaining, or will it be more of a quiet space where you and your family can relax? Certain deck materials are better suited to high traffic, so it’s important to think about how you’ll be using your deck before deciding on a material.
How you’ll access your new deck is also something you need to consider. Ideally, the deck will be accessed through a door from the living room or kitchen. It is possible to install the deck in a portion of the house that doesn’t currently have a door, but you’ll have to make an opening for it.
